correspondent john king has some answers. >> well, anderson, that narrow ohio lead for the president is within the poll's sampling error but it is yet another poll showing the president with a small persistent lead in the state of ohio. let's take a closer look at why it is happening in this state that is so important in the pick for president. here's the main reason right here. governor romney gets the republicans. the president gets the democrats but at the moment, in our survey, the president has a narrow lead among ohio voters who define themselves as independents. that is the battleground in a big battleground state, if you win the independents you are likely to win. governor romney close but the president with an important edge among independent voters. there's also an age divide, if you look at likely voters in ohio. among voters under the age of 50, there's a big gap, 18 point lead for the president among voters under the age of 50. a smaller lead for governor romney among voters 50 and older so the republicans are withstanding the attacks on the ryan budget, the medicare attacks, but
increasingly important presidential battleground. we're talking about the commonwealth of virginia. john king spent some time there talking to people and poll sters. >> if you look at the map miguel is in colorado that's one of the red states the president turned blue. if you lo at the map you see all this red. how did obama win last time? he woven it from all of them right here in fast growing northern virginia. >> reporter: urgency in a place once reliably red. >> this is the republican party in virginia. >> mitt romney's path to the white house runs through virginia and to win it he must run strong within an hour's drive of washington. >> it's all about northern virginia. there have been so many people from the northeast, from decratic areas, that they have turned a solid red state into a purple state. >> reporter: recent polls show a dead heat. >> if you look at the dozen polls in virginia taken before the first presidential debate on october 3rd, obama was ahead in all 12. if you look at the eight polls taken after the first presidential debate, romney was ahead in 6 out of the 8. and it
look right now in the race to 270 electoral votes. john king is here at the magic wall. on this day with three days to go, it's going to be complicate d. >> we know it's close and we have to say advantage to the president. but how big, that's the open question. we start the final weekend 237 strong or leaning the president's way. 206 leaning governor romney's way. the race of course is to 270. the president is ending withal rallies in iowa, wisconsin and ohio. why? because that's his easiest path to 270. if the president can take iowa, can take wisconsin and can take ohio, it's game over. if nothing else changed on the map, that would get the president to 271 and it would be game over. that's why the president is ending his campaign right here in the hardland. places where he can talk about the auto bailout. that's one way. that's the president's quickest way. i won't say it's the easest. it means that governor romney has to take the state of ohio. that was the president's fastest way. how does governor romney get there? he has to win the state of florida. he needs florida. he has t
and correspondent john king. >> the storm has been a real curveball for candidates. how has mitt romney been handling transitioning back to regular campaign mode? does he feel that it may have stopped his momentum? >> what we saw earlier from mitt romney, he went back on offense. after dialing back his criticism of president obama in the immediate aftermath of superstorm sandy, he went on the attack. he ridiculed the idea for the secretary and he unleashed this ad. a spanish language tv ad that linked president obama to hugo chavez and the castro family. i think the romney campaign at this point, they're not really staying one way or the other whether or not the campaign has been damaged to some sentence by what happened with hurricane sandy but i think the, getting back on offense does reflect the fact that they feel like they'd better get this momentum back on their side. clearly it has been affected. >> and president obama has obviously been in full presidential mode. he took a break from campaigning but he's been very visible. he is getting good marks hoist handling of the storm, most no
and send it back to the private sector, that's even better. >> reporter: john king at that debate back in 2011. yesterday mitt romney at a campaign event converted to a disaster relief event in ohio and was asked by reporters a number of times about what he would do with fema. take a listen to what he said. >> reporter: governor, would you eliminate fema if you were president? >> reporter: what would you do with fema? >> you can see he didn't say much to those questions. the campaign says it would be better for the state to be in charge of disaster relief. >> paul steinhouser, thank you so much. in the next half hour, we'll break down the final six days of the presidential campaign with the former senior adviser to bill clinton and will cain from theblaze.com. >>> like something out of the 1970s, gas is hard to get in storm-ravaged areas. we'll have much more coming up. at shell, we believe the world needs a broader mix of energies. that's why we're supplying natural gas to generate cleaner electricity... that has around 50% fewer co2 emissions than coal. and it's also why, with our pa
of sandy and also because of his statements made in the primary debates when he was questioned by john king. so this situation is not looking too good for mitt romney right now. an these are valid reporter questions, correct? >> yeah, look, i think all questions are valid whether the campaign thinks so or not. i'm not going to sit here and justify governor romney's comments on fema. what i think he was trying to say is any time you get a federal agency and give them more money and power to the states, they do it better. i can be -- i can say that when i was in the governor's office here in tennessee. our emergency management team did such a better job dealing with tornados and the things we had to deal with on the ground. fema was this very large federal agency. i don't think it's appropriate for governor romney and i think the campaign is making the riot call to talk about any criticism of fema right now because we're all in this together. he's trying to do everything he can to help. he's kind of got a very tough line to kind of cross and straddle in the fact that he can't come out and cri
said in a cnn debate to john king, privatize fema. >> right. >> consider turning it over the states. imagine if the states had no backing from washington in this crisis. imagine where they would be. so that's a subtext. i also think that the whole question of infrastructure and first responders and you know these -- >> government employees. >> -- government employees dewried by the republican party in the last couple of years and this again, nas 9/11, coming to the fore, understanding heroic quality and we need them, sometimes we need government to help people and that, as bill clinton and barack obama have been saying, this election is about, are we in this together or is it every person for themselves in. >> this is just to echo the first thing jonathan said, if you flip it around, this is a major republican talking point and they have basis to make this argument. why do you want to re-elect barack obama if they couldn't work across the aisle for four years. suddenly that talking point that argument gets stopped in its tracks by the pictures of barack obama and governor christie.
, we just don't know. >> john king, jessica yellin. thanks. >>> we were reporting earlier on the broadcast about the lack of attention staten island has been getting. we got breaking news. we just got word that janet napolitano is going to visit staten island tomorrow. as we mentioned, people have been expressing a lot of frustration and the federal response, secretary napolitano will tour the area. still ahead, we remember the victims of the storm. we are learning more and more about the lives lost. the lives they lived. we'll remember them and pay tribute to their lives that ended suddenly when sandy struck. >>> so many people here in new york and new jersey and throughout the northeast have lost everything, others are still without power or having a lot of trouble getting around and waiting in long lines for gas. for some families, the toll that sandy took is much higher. at least 157 people were killed in this storm. 88 of them here in the united states. tonight we remember all of those who died. we want to take a minute just to get to know a little bit about some of t
in that primary debate that john king moderated where he was asked specifically about fema. he said anything that the federal government does that can be transferred to the states are better yet to the private sector. that's the right direction. so it leaves open the question of exactly what role he sees for fema. fema has been a controversial agency such as their delivery of services after katrina. however it's pretty popular when it comes in and helps and picks up the costs in the aftermath of disasters like this one. so i think it's a question that i would expect governor romney feel that he needs to say some words about. maybe today about what role he would see for the federal government for fema if he were president in natural disasters like this one. >> all this goes back to what mitt romney said in one of the early primary debates. i want to play that now. >> every time you have an occasion, you take something from the federal government and send it back to the states, that's the right direction. if you can go even further and send it back to the private sector, that's even better. we
. >> during the g.o.p. primaries there is a clip of him talking to cnn's john king about what we should do about financial issues with fema. >> stephanie: yeah, we have that. >> every time you have an and an occasion to take something from the federal government and send it back to the states, that's the right direction. if you can go further and send it back to the private sector, that's even better. instead of thinking in the federal budget, what we should cut, we should ask ourselves the opposite question. what should we keep? >> yes because in an emergency the local officials would like to do everything themselves. >> stephanie: he'll find some awful way to politicize this. >> a lot more news coming up. the hurricane is the top story and will stay that way (vo) brought to you by metlife. stay tuned for the answer. (vo) brought to you by metlife.

to call cbs the right wing, the john birch people, the color broadcasting system or the communist broadcasting system because once it went from 50 minute news to a half-hour cbs recovering martin luther king every night, turning him into a new superstar and putting their cameras on bull connor's mad dogs in birmingham and water hoses on peaceful protesters and the like. and so one of cronkite's great legacies is that cbs dot in the mode for promoting the civil rights movement, serious news, and gave king such a huge platform. and he loved lyndon johnson. he has an unusual relationship with lbj because he thought what johnson's great society was doing was tremendous, particularly to civil rights acts of '64 and '65. people like roger mudd started cutting their teeth and covering filibusters on civil rights on capitol hill of alike. gant -- dan rather did great work in the south. the openness of the bureau covering civil rights. many might have forgotten named nelson benton. they would do incredible broadcasts. but i would say beyond jim-crow he was a child of the great depression.
